Have you ever wondered why, as a waiter or waitress, you always ask the question "How's everything?" after serving meals to your customers?
The "How's everything?" question is asked virtually every time an entree is served. So much so that diners tend to ignore it as a serious enquiry. 95% of the times you ask the question it's immediately closed by your diner who responds with "Fine" a mean-nothing, one-syllable word and you walk away.
